I'd say Emily Blunt, but she's going to be a legendary actress someday and I don't know if doing a Superman movie is in the best interests of her career.

But what I don’t understand is why not Brandon Routh for Superman/Clark Kent again? I thought he was great and even managed to capture some of Reeve’s mannerisms and inflections.

I thought so too, but I think that was the problem.. He was too much like Christopher Reeve.. I think they wanted to go into a different direction.

Amy Acker seems to have a similar facial structure that Joanne Siegel* did when she was young. Very high, strong cheekbones.

(*wife of the original Superman creator and model for the first Lois Lane.)

Of those, Evangeline Lilly would be my pick. I think Zooey Deschanel would be good if they decided to go for an updated Margo Kidder type.

Evangeline FTW. If Superman is British, why can’t Lois be Canadian.

(Although I do love Emma Stone...)

Lois Lane is a journalist, so they need to find an actress who can play a strident Leftist. Where in Hollywood are they going to find a ... oh, wait ... I guess it won’t be a problem.

She's not on the list, but I thing Gemma Arterton would be good. Her & Henry Cavill would be hot together! :)

I was surprised Lena Headey didn’t make the list, though I think Summer Glau would do fine in the role as well.

Why do you want to give the MSM glamorous babes to pump up their image? Lois Lane was a reporter at a newspaper, part of the MSM right? In today’s age they should be using women that are worthy of todays crop of MSM reporters. Why not Andrea Mitchell or Candy Crowley? Either one of them would be perfect.
